staying away from FacebookPosted: March 13, 2017
I’m staying away from Facebook these days.
I still post my blog to Facebook and I check in for notifications, but that’s really it. Every time I start to scroll in my news feed I get nauseous and regret it.
No matter what I do, I can’t avoid posts about that guy with the orange hair. Posts about Congress are often inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date, or just plain wrong. And people I like and respect are reposting this stuff. I’ve thought about doing a thorough scrubbing of my news feed, but it just doesn’t seem like it is worth the effort, or would even be successful.
I need to try to stay sane, as best as possible. Right now that means staying away from Facebook.
I would, however, be happy to have you join me on Instagram, where I keep it non-political and follow people who keep their photos non-political.
